Anyone know who would have made this, or what it was made for?

I think it came out of an electric golfcart.

I'm thinking maybe one of the larger older, Taylor Dunn industrial carts.

It appears to have steering brakes is you could get the numbers you might be able to track it back also do a Paten number search Alsoo i would say its a Dana axle

It definitely came out of a golf cart or industrial cart from the 1970's (give or take a few years). Interestingly enough the differentials for these early models were the same for both electric and gas powered versions. Great find, definitely handy for a homemade project.

Looks DANA to me, just about like a Power King used. I can see all kinds of numbers and such in casting, can't use those to ID? The actual vehicle shouldn't matter,just make it fit whatever!

I did a search on those patent #s, and they cover "differential" (not specific)

 

After cleaning somemore crud off, I found a tag on the backside, bottom left.

It reads.

 

31-6

5.17

31 divided by 6 = 5.166

 

I.E. - gear ratio of the axle. 31 teeth on the ring and 6 teeth on the pinion.
